Differentiation at a Glance

Differentiation at a Glance http://farr-integratingit.net/Trainings/Differentiate/strategies.htm#a You can differentiate: Content- what the teacher wants the student to learn and the materials or resources through which that is accomplished Process- activities designed to ensure that students use key skills to make sense out of essential ideas and information Products- vehicles through which students demonstrate and extend what they have learned Readiness- a student's entry point relative to a particular understanding or skill Learning Profile- how an individual student learns Differentiation is not o assigning 30 math problems and the other students get 15 math problems o giving the students an extra project or extra assignments o simply enrichment Differentiation IS o providing choice o offering alternate assignments o flexible grouping Low Preparation Differentiation High Preparation Differentiation Choice of Books Homework Options Interest Centers/Stations Open Ended Activities Simulations Varied Supplemental Texts  Choice Boards/ Tic-Tac-Toe Think-Pair-Share   Alternative/Multiple Assessments Flexible Seating/Learning Groups  Multiple Testing Options Work Alone or Together  Multiple Texts Choice of Writing Prompts  Tiered Activities & Products Rubrics Think of your students when you plan. o Vary the types of learning experiences to appeal to different learning styles and intelligences Prompt high-level thinking and responses for all students. o Challenge all students, regardless of learning level, to continually analyze and synthesize as they work Encourage multiple responses from students instead of suspending discussion after only one response. o Follow up multiple responses by prompting students to prove or justify answers. Provide tasks that involve varying levels of difficulty and incorporate appropriate levels of challenge Support students' interests and choices. o Allow students to choose topics to study, products to develop, and an array of applications and extensions to enhance their learning. Share criteria for success and high achievement with students in advance. o Encourage students to use criteria for self or collaborative evaluation http://www.3villagecsd.k12.ny.us/Instructional_Technology/TchLrn/Differentinstructoverview.htm http://www.adifferentplace.org/teachers.htm

Alternative Assessments opportunities to demonstrate understanding of material learned in "real-world" ways. Choice Boards –  organizers that contain a variety of activities  students can choose one or several activities to complete as they learn a skill or develop a product  can be organized so that students are required to choose options that focus on several different skills               Examples of products that can elicit sophisticated responses Write and produce a play  Make a relief map Make a game  Develop a display Write a new song  Make a map Create a slide show,  Formulate a scientific theory Produce a video  Take a survey and analyze results Compile a photo essay  Write and illustrate a story Design and construct a new product  Design an experiment Paint a picture, make a mural, or any piece of art  Write a computer program Compile a newspaper  Teach a lesson Plan a journey  Give a demonstration Create an advertisement  Draw and explain a graph Compile a portfolio of sketches or writings  Create a political cartoon Give a speech  Compile a booklet Write an opinion article Great website for content specific activities: http://www.thirteen.org/edonline/lessons/index_sci.html The Differentiator – a website that creates higher-order questions and products with a few clicks of a mouse http://byrdseed.com/differentiator/
